About the employer

Our ‘Ofsted Outstanding’ nursery provides care to children aged 0-5 years and is located in a large Grade II listed farm house in the green belt. Today the characterful Hale Day Nursery offers large grounds and play areas surrounded by fields to two sides which lead to the Bollin River. Our idyllic location enables much of our time to be spent outdoors, in our large garden, the local park or the Cheshire countryside, which is literally on our doorstep.
